Wrestling Is Out.

Recommended Posts

IOC states Wrestling is out of olympics starting 2020. Wrestling still has one final vote to get this decision turned around.

Trampoline in... Wrestling out?? I think I am going to be sick.

What?? Wrestling is a classic sport. What's next? Discus Throw? Javelin?

Trampoline isn't even a freakin sport as far as i'm concerned. Same with Equastrian freakin show jumping. How does that challenge one human's abilities against another?? But no more wrestling? WOW.

That they would even consider omitting wrestling is pathetic...

It was an important part of the Ancient Olympic Games...

From olympic.org:

Wrestling

This was highly valued as a form of military exercise without weapons. It ended only when one of the contestants admitted defeat.

You have to wonder about the thinking...

And what are we talking when wrestling is now in a pool of other sports that it will have to compete to get selected which has the likes of:

wait for it....

wushu and roller sports

Are we talking Rollerblading here and what the heck is wushu???

The most absolute worst decision the IOC could have made. I was in shock when I read it.

Wrestling's out, but golf is in for Rio 2016. Pathetic. I can't believe they are also considering wakeboarding. It's a hobby, not a sport.

Stupid. It's why the Olympics are becoming more difficult to watch every year.

I hope they are not talking about the exhibition form of wushu, but it wouldn`t surprise me... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wushu_(sport)

And as for roller sports, who knows?, but this wouldn't surprise me either...
